Court Approves Nationwide Class Settlement Against Electrolux Home Products, Inc.
On September 11, 2014, the United States District Court for the Central District of California entered an order granting final approval to a nationwide class action settlement against Electrolux Home Products, Inc., related to allegedly defective dryers. The Settlement has a value of at least $35.5 million.
Along with co-counsel Hansen Reynolds Dickinson Crueger LLC, and Greg Coleman Law PC, the Court appointed Wexler Wallace LLP attorneys Edward A. Wallace, Amy E. Keller, and Dawn M. Goulet to represent the interests of the nationwide Settlement Class members.
Individuals who purchased or currently own dryers with a serial number beginning with “XD,” which includes Frigidaire, Kenmore, White Westinghouse, Kelvinator, Gibson, Tappan, and Crosley brands, are eligible for a number of benefits under the Settlement—none of which will be capped by Electrolux, and none of which will require the class members to release any personal injury or property damage claims. These benefits include, but are not limited to, cash rebates, reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses, and a free safety cleaning service.
Wexler Wallace partner Edward A. Wallace spoke in favor of final approval on August 18, 2014, and Judge Christina A. Snyder recognized that the Settlement “confers significant benefits to Class members,” “totaling a minimum of $35.5 million in projected-utilization values.”
